Easy Molten Lava Cakes

I've made a few different versions of 'lava cakes' and this is the easiest one i've tried, although they are all very easy! It only takes about 20 min. from the time you start making these until you're eating them. They are very good and you can't just eat one. Well, I can't. Give them a try, you won't be sorry!!
Easy Molten Lava Cakes
4 squares Semi-sweet bakers Chocolate (or just 4 ounces of whatever semi-sweet chocolate you have. I used chocolate chips.)
1/2 c. butter
1 c. Powdered sugar
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
6 TBLS. flour

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave. Stir until smooth. Stir in powdered sugar and combine. Next stir in eggs to combine. Then stir in flour. Divide between 4 small 6-8 oz Pam sprayed ramekins. I don't have remekins so I just poured it straight into the cupcake pan (no liners!) and ended up with 4 cakes for 1/2 batch. Bake 425 for 13 - 14 minutes or until top begins to crack.
Remove from oven, let stand 1 minute, loosen or cut around edge and invert onto plate.
*Note: Be sure to watch these things, if you cook them for even a minute or two longer, the insides will solidify and it won't be gooey inside. I took mine out after 10 min. of baking and they weren't as gooey as they should have been.
